The Garden

The Garden

Available on Pluto TV
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, The Garden is an engaging and powerful look at the famous political and social battle over the largest community garden in the U.S. (located in South Central Los Angeles). A follow-up to Kennedy's award-winning documentary OT: Our Town, the film shows how the politics of power and greed (backroom deals, land developing, green politics, money) tragically intersect with working class families who rely on this communal garden for their livelihood. Equal parts The Wire and Harlan County U.S.A., The Garden exposes the fault lines in American society and raises crucial and challenging questions about liberty, equality, and justice for the poorest and most vulnerable among us.
Starring Daryl Hannah, Danny Glover
